Boredom and NaNo...

I'm bored. It doesn't happen often these days and yes, there are a million things I could be doing around DM that I really need to get done, but...

 

*sighs* I'm not just bored, I'm restless and bored.

 

So, I wandered over to the Nanowrimo boards and reminded myself that I have a little over a week until that opens up. HOLY CRAP! 8 days and I have no idea what I'm writing. No character. No plot. Not even a song or a picture to start from.

 

So, the purpose of this entry is to see if anyone has any ideas. What music has moved you, lately? Is there a picture that made you go "wow," lately? If so, please feel free to share! I need all the help I can get!

My Nano prompt this year will be to turn my family members into fantasy characters. You simply choose an aspect of their life or personality to exaggerate, and bingo, instant character lineup. Plot will be a little harder, since most families don't have much in the way of epic drama going on, but I'm gonna stick with my old standby of 'your homeland is about to be overrun by war' and see what happens next.

I find that looking around on DeviantArt gives me lots of ideas, if only for how a character looks like. You should check out my favs: Featured

 

I really need to organize them better but they are some amazing pictures there!

 

As for music, I love soundtracks. And i love finding songs that give me the essence of a character or of a moment in that character's experience. Nothing special pops to mind though.

that's a really cool idea, Lironah! I've sorta done that a bit with my online friends, but it might be fun to play with my family... *ponders*

I usually haunt Epilogue.net, so I know what you mean, Lia. Thanks for the link, too. :D
